What I Ate Wednesday #4

My day started off with a 50 Minute Spin class at 7:15 in the morning. I drank my amino acids and water during the class, then enjoyed an apple, carrots, monster and my homemade chocolate frosting :)

Around 12, I was starving. I had a can of tuna with a honeycrisp apple. Honeycrisp apples are the best, hands down!

Around 3, the carb rush hit me. I had a delicious frozen yogurt with some bran cereal, blueberries, and a confetti cupcake poptart. Yes, I am a child that still loves poptarts.

For dinner around 6 I had half of a Morningstar Chickpea pizza and two pieces of a fresh whole grain baguette with tuna, provolone, and celery on top.

What I Ate Wednesday #3

WIAW Header_PHOTO

This WIAW is brought to you by the most epic surf so far this winter.  I’m going to take you through last Thursday’s eats with some Dawn patrol surf action. Literally, up before the sun.

Panoramic WIAW1

So my pre-surf meal was delicious home made coconut milk espresso with my favorite- Detour Simple Bar. The flavor is Salted Caramel Cookie Dough and it’s heaven. It tastes like such a guilty pleasure-but is packed with protein and healthy fats.

WIAW2 WIAW3

We then went and surfed for three hours (!) by ourselves. It was amazing.

So, soon to follow was a delicious breakfast of a Trader Joe’s British Whole Wheat Cinnamon Raisin muffin with a fried egg.

WIAW2

 

We then became responsible adults again and went into the office. While I was there I got hungry again and made a delicious salad of cabbage, brussel sprouts, peppers, homemade chicken salad, and Bolthouse Farms Ranch- so good!

 

WIAW3

Then we went home and had a caveman dinner. Seriously, skewered the steak and everything ;) It turned out delicious though, we created a rosemary reduction that we rubbed the steak with and then skewered it and broiled it. We served it over an avocado salad with tons of vegetables and used Cilantro Avocado Ranch from Bolthouse Farms.

WIAW4 WIAW5

It was such a fun day and we ate like Kings! What did you end up eating for the day?

Creamy Dreamy Egg Whites (Under 200 Calories!)

This is my go-to breakfast at the office lately. It’s so easy, packed with protein, and all I need in my office refrigerator is a carton of Egg Whites and a pack of Laughing Cow Creamy Swiss Light.

This recipe is so simple, it shouldn’t really be called a recipe ;)

Check out the Nutrition Facts at the bottom for more detailed macros, but I’ll give you the highlights: only 4 grams of Carbs and 30 g of Protein!

What I Ate Wednesday #2

This is my second WIAW and thanks Jenn for the Link up!

I woke up early today and went for a long soccer run. This is where I go down the beach dribbling, shooting the soccer ball at the dunes and pretend like I’m actually good at it ;)
I went about 3.4 miles in about 30 minutes. It wasn’t fast but I was changing direction and zig zagging a lot, which I think makes it a better workout..

I came back and got ready for work. At the office I had a feast of my Amino1 with Ginger brew and 2 clementines, 2 cereal protein balls, and 1 VitaFiber protein bar.

Around 10:30 I was hungry again and made an Openfaced PB2 and Sugar free jelly on Light whole grain bread. This is so good. I’m so disappointed when it’s over.

Around 1 or so I made lettuce wraps with ground turkey and a few Simply Sprouted Chips. IMG_1239

Then I got hungry again around 3, naturally. :) Any morning I run, I’m a garbage disposal the rest of the day! I ate a few more cereal protein balls- I didn’t have a picture, but this was the whole batch. I only ate a few.

Then for dinner, we had a cheese plate of delicious cheeses from Trader Joes- gorgonzola blue, bacon cheddar, and another blue.

Followed by roasted butternut squash and sweet potato with goat cheese. SO DELICIOUS AND FILLING. I get why the French consider cheeses to be dessert at the end of a meal.

Lunch

What I Ate Wednesday #1

WIAW Header_PHOTO

Thank you Jenn for the link-up!
This is my first WIAW and I’m kind of excited. Unfortunately, these are my Tuesday eats, but there’s lots of goodies in there :)

For something in my stomach before I workout I made an almond-coconut milk cappuccino and took a mix of ginger brew, water, and Amino 1 (pineapple mango flavor is the best!) to spin.

Cocktail Coffee

Naturally, after spin, I’m starving by the time I get to the office 45 minutes later. However, I found the most amazing WHOLE GRAIN cinnamon raisin British muffins at Trader Joes. (I love how Trader Joes decided English muffins were out of style) I topped one of those bad boys with egg whites and shredded Fat Free cheese from Kraft.

BFAST

Now thanks to MyFitnessPal, I’m starting to get my office snacking under control. No more grazing! (If you’re on MFP, add me, KellythXC)

So for lunch I had Hungry-Girl’s Cheeseburger Mac Attack, left over from Superbowl. Seriously, this is an AMAZING crock pot recipe that I think everybody should make and have prepared for the week. Low calorie, full of fiber, and full of protein.

Lunch

Around 3, I always start to get really hungry, but this time I was prepared with a tofu lemon bar experiment. I have not posted this recipe because it was very tart and not sweet at all, but still delicious and low carb when you need it ;) I ate about 1/3 of this and it was only 75 calories, no sugar, and tons of protein!

Lemon Bars

Finally around 5:30 I had the most epic cheese dinner. I have really been on a cheese kick lately and probably need to calm this habit down soon ;)

This was a dinner of Miracle noodles with All-natural tomato sauce, Quatro formaggio (also from Trader Joes), mushrooms, and a little bit of brie. You really cannot see anything though under that blanket of melted cheese.

This kept me full through the rest of the night of stretching, foam rolling, and watching Duma, which is only a good movie because there is a cheetah in it the entire time.  It’s really meant for kids, but that’s never stopped me before :) Hello Lilo & Stich and Monster’s Inc.
